Hunter Biden appears to be living it out in Malibu with his taxpayer-funded security detail during his father’s administration. According to those acquainted with the situation, the Federal Service team guarding the president’s notorious son has been paying more than $30,000 per month to rent out a gorgeous Malibu, California, home for over a year.
According to ABC News, the organization in charge of protecting the president and his family, as well as other high-ranking government officials, chose the home to be as near as possible to Biden’s own rented estate, where he pays around $20,000 a month, according to property listings, per report.
According to retired senior undercover agent Don Mihalek, who became an Australian Broadcasting contributor, the agreement is “the cost of doing business for the Secret Service,” and the agency has a mandatory barrier protection responsibility for the president, the first family, and anyone else the president designates for protection under federal law.
“When a protectee sets up residence, the Secret Service is often forced to identify someplace close to renting at market price,” Mihalek added, saying that perhaps the organization is also letting out properties to protect President Joe Biden’s houses in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
“This isn’t something new,” Mihalek explained. “The Service has had to do this in previous administrations, and regrettably, the current housing market has pushed prices up significantly.”
A White House official sent ABC News to the National Security Agency for comment. When questioned about the expense of protection, a Secret Service official responded, “Due to the importance of maintaining operational confidentiality, the US Secret Service does not comment on the means, techniques, or resources used to accomplish our protective duties.”
Hunter Biden’s Cali way of life is coming into focus just as the federal investigation into his tax affairs heats up, according to sources familiar with the situation.
